He said that both a smaller middle school on the north side and the existing middle school in the south attendance zone could feed into the highschool. The superintendent said he thinks the high school can handle a substantially larger enrollment if additions are made. The school board took no action during the study session but agreed that the city’s population will continue to grow, causing a new for more schools. Bob Self, board president, said he has read recent projections estimating that the local population will increase by 53 percent from 1985 to 2000 Bradberry said the school district is about two years away from reaching enrollment figures that were projected for the mid-1990s Referring to those enrollment projections that were prepared about four years ago. the superintendent said the figures do not consider new educational standards “They do not consider 22:1 (the maximum student to teacher ratio in kindergarten and first grade' They do not consider special programs Basically, they do not consider House Bill 72. " he said District enrollment totals 4,829, compared to the projected 4.590 enrollment for this time Enrollment at Memorial is at 648 and is projected to increase to 706 at the 31-classroom campus by next fall, the superinten dent said He added that Memorial will need two or three more teachers next year while Carl Schurz, will pro bably need three more teachers to handle the increased number of students “At Lone Star, we re using even classroom in the building We re not using the two portable buildings We think we're in pretty good shape there," Bradberry said The superintendent added that while there is little extra space if any. rn the district’s north side cam puses, it is the south side that will need new construction Also during Tuesday's study ses sion. the trustees studied a proposed elementary grading standards The trustees accepted the resignation of Sally Kamau who taught fifth grade at Carl Schurz Bradberry said Ear nau submitted her resignation because of health reasons Christine Sorensen was approved for hire to replace Karnau Trustees also considered a drainage problem at lame Star Primary School Bradberry describ ed recommendations that have been made by an engineer who reviewed the campus He said improvements could be made to divert rainwater away from buildings relieving the immediate problems but not solving all the drainage problems at the cam pus Currently, heavy rains easily flood into the gymnasium making unusable Principal Karen Simpson told the board that her main concern is "going out and finding the gym flooded and not being able lo use it " She said immediate steps need to be taken to relieve the problems Trustee Dick Robinett said that while the immediate problems must be dealt with, district officials need to look at the broader problem “There s a whole raft of problems out there and it s known as growth I think we should look to the city and the city council about what their long range plans are," he said Stammtisch.

Continued from Page IA the proposed water quality standards are significant to resource management program in the state because ‘they expand the foundation for the more aggressive water quality management program established by the Texas Water Commission two years ago “We believe these proposed standards, coupled with the continuing increased emphasis on the water quality enforcement and permitting programs, will go a long way toward assuring the pe& pie of Texas of continued availability of good quality water without creating unnecessary or unreasonable economic burdens,” he said, adding, “Certainly, there will be significant additional coats involved with implementation of some of these proposed revisions, but we believe that these costs are reasonably balanced with the responsibility to ensure surface water quality protection for the state ” The most significant proposals involve increased emphasis on standards for Intermittent streams and the development and implementation of standards dealing with toxic substances in surface w aters “The commission staff believes that we have developed proposed standards that represent an extension of the commission’s policy to protect and enhance the surface waters of Texas without creating unnecessary or unreasonable economic burdens for the people of the state The proposed standards reflect a concerted effort to balance our strong commitment to water quality protaction with our strong suport for continuing economic develpment in the state,” Soward said.
